How concerned are you regarding the safety of your information on your Facebook account? I try to keep my password difficult for anyone else to hack but also easy enough that I don't forget it. With all the changes that Facebook makes regularly, it's a great idea to get into your Privacy Settings and make sure that those that are seeing what you share, are the people you want to see it. We've all seen the horror stories of the people who have gotten a job and then post something on Facebook about their employer, only to be fired the next day. While I don't recommend bad mouthing an employer on Facebook, if their posts weren't public, they could possibly still be employed.

The fith point is overlooked by many people, thinking they they are only sharing with friends. Regardless of your own privacy settings, you have no control what your friends will share, and no control over what their friends may comment on a post you made on your friends timeline.
Something I learned at the two day Facebook Developers conference, is that most people access FB on their cell phone and never disconnect. Phones are easliy lost and hacked, Most people use free WI-fi which adds increased vunerability to their accounts. If using mobile devices most regularly, especially at free wi-fi spots, the password should be changed often and as soon as you are back at secured internet or 4/5G connection.. It may seem like a lot to do, however, it is more costly in time and loss when you have to attempt to repair a bad reputatio after the fact.
I couldn't agree with you more! I never connect to free wifi as that just scares me! And you're right, I never log out on my mobile! And that's not a good thing either!
